>Wilkes-Barre, PA --- She’s Marvalous, a 15-1 longshot who was well-placed in a lively outer flow during the last half by driver Andrew McCarthy, kicked home strongly enough to hold off the horse on her back, Rei’s Star Cross, by 1-1/4 lengths to win the $18,000 distaff pacing feature Tuesday night (June 6) at The Downs at Pocono Sun Mohegan.

The daughter of Delmarvalous recorded a new mark of 1:52.3 over the glib Pocono oval despite the less-than-ideal conditions.

She is trained by Bill MacKenzie for owners Anthony and Alma Iafelice.

In the $16,000 co-feature the Well Said mare Princess Fabulosa, away from the races for a week short of 11 months, was honed to perfection for her return mile by trainer Mark Silva.

She went to the lead in front of the stands under the guidance of Scott Zeron and turned back pocket horse Family Roll Call to win by 1-1/2 lengths in 1:52.4, also a new mark, with a last quarter of 27.4.

Lewis Whitaker shares ownership in the winner with Charles Rowe.
